I love eating flowers! There’s something a little naughty and beautiful and fun all at the same time about it.
Here are a few I know you can eat. Pansies, nasturtiums, and daylilies.
And here’s a link to a super helpful flower eating chart.
It was about 90 degrees when I made this salad. We all wanted simple and refreshing.
- Pansy flowers
- Spicy greens and romaine
- Fresh tai basil (tear off leaves and toss with greens)
- Chickpeas (rinsed well)
- Red cabbage
- Radish (just cleaned with the leaves still on)
- Red onion
- Red pepper
- Olive oil and red wine vinegar (just drizzle on top of everything)
- Sea Salt and pepper to taste
The greens, flowers, and veggies all have so much flavor in this salad. It’s good to keep the dressing simple. That way you can just appreciate good food for what it is.
Just a side note: My two year old love chickpeas and getting to eat flowers. We made it very clear that these were “special” flowers. Not to be confused with those random and possibly poisonous ones in nature.
